Shaped both in Berlin and in London, the brand’s philosophy and aesthetic always have been against the social norms of dressing, style, and design. For the designer, parallels are drawn between the influence of these two cities: Berlin and London. These include quintessential tailoring, flavours of an urbanised East End London alongside references to both Berlin’s casual European lifestyle and gritty underground fetish scene.
Dhenze recognises a need for well-made luxury fashion. The garments use patterns, shapes and a darker colour palette to explore the Avant-Garde. Furthermore, using PVC, leather and cotton, the revealing and concealing of flesh through design proposes a seasonless, minimal and gender-neutral appeal.
Above all Dhenze seeks to create an armour that both protects while showing vulnerability. This duality and opposition is itself the lifeblood of the brand – a brand aesthetic and philosophy that celebrates the uniqueness of self-expression and personal style.
